For those of you who have been following me along my quest for the best dog (for me) know I have settled on a Golden Retriever. I have also spent a lot of time speaking with breeders and visiting dogs and now we have finally picked out our little princess.

I went to visit with her this weekend. She is happily hanging out with her parents and brothers!! My first puppy pictures!!

Here are her parents:

Leelee - as you requested, some more details!!

She is about 2 1/2 weeks old in the pictures from this past Saturday. And yes, I really can't wait to add her to the family!! At the same time I am happily getting puppy things and preparing for her to join us! It will be a while before we do get to take her home.

I am worried though. When my BF held her she looked so content and happy and she was silent. When I held her, she started a low throaty growl and ended in a big woof. What's the deal? I am worried she doesn't like me, but have been told since I was holding her near my heart that maybe she could hear my heart beating and was asking for food like she would from her mom. Anyone else had this happen with a puppy? BF is teasing me that she like him more than me, and it's really crushing me!!

I am sure it will all work out, just silly new puppy jitters!

And names... we are still thinking of some names and would be happy to have the help if you could think of any for this little blonde bombshell! I like people names, but am open to anything!!

Whoohoo! That's definetly what we are going for! We even left a doggy "blanket" (it's actually a kitchen towel) that has "our smell" on it. It's supposed to help her know us, and then it will get mom and sibling smell on it, so when we take her home.. she can still smell her family and hopefully be more comfortable! :yes:
